3 Ways to Cook Beets

1. QUICK-PREP, SLOW-ROAST METHOD
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a baking dish, toss beets with oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover dish tightly with foil; roast until tender when pierced with a knife, 45 to 60 minutes, depending on size. Rub with a paper towel to remove skins.
2. PRECUT, FAST-ROAST METHOD

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place beets (peeled and cut into 1/2-inch wedges) on a large piece of foil on a baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Fold foil around beets and crimp ends to form a packet. Roast until beets are tender when pierced with a knife, 25 to 30 minutes.

3. STEAMED METHOD

Set a steamer basket in a saucepan with 2 inches simmering water. Add beets (peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces). Cover and steam until beets are tender when pierced with a knife, 15 to 20 minutes.
